"Nice hotel, but not what I am used to from Intercontinental"
I had a room that faces the Opera house and Opera metro. The view was good, the service was good, the hotel was well kept, the room was clean and comfortable, but there were some things that I would not expect from a hotel of this caliber, especially an Intercontinental hotel. The building has 5 floors and is an old building with lots of history. It certainly would fit into a movie from the Golden Era of Holly wood with handsome gentlemen and elegant ladies, which is not a bad thing. However in some instances where the property was updated, some details were missed. For instance, you should bring along a bright flashlight with you since the room doesn't have a flashlight in case there is an electricity outage. You'll, however, find yourself using the flashlight most of the time to look into the dark cabinets and drawers installed in the hallway. There is one feeble light at the end of the entry hallway near the main room, so the rest of the hallway is dark, making it impossible to see what's in the cabinets. The room safe is mounted in these cabinets and is useless without a flashlight since it's impossible to see the safe. I have attached a picture of the safe door illuminated with my flashlight. There are some things the hotel has no control over, such as the location. It's a great location if you are a tourist and want to see the local sights or go shopping, but the hotel is built above the Opera metro station and you'll hear and feel the vibrations when a train passes by. However, if you ever want to go anywhere on the metro, the Opera metro station is across the street. This has the advantage of being able to go to Charles de Gaule airport by train from the hotel. How convenient!
"Le Grand Hotel"
Our family of five stayed the beginning of January at the IC Paris le Grand. I booked a Deluxe room for our girls and for my husband and I. As a Platinum Ambassador I was upgraded to a junior suite. My husband and I celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary and the service was wonderful. We had a lovely stay, rooms are nicely decorated and matresses very good. The only problem is the hotel being older it is hard to find places to plug in your electronics. My husband has to travel with his phone, watch, and computer. The lounge is really nice with a lot of choices regarding drinks and good food, the service in the lounge is also very good and above all very friendly. I don't think I would pay the 120Euros per night to upgrade to the lounge access again. Looking back I spent more then if I would of just booked the Club room, my mistake. Location is wonderful across from the Opera and Metro. Will certainly stay again at this hotel!
"A grand large hotel"
The Le Grand is a grand classy hotel. It was built in 1862 and it still have keep the atmosphere. We got a superior room which was quite small. You could not fit an extra bed. The bathroom was almost as big. The is a couple of stairs to reach the entrance, thus not that convenient if you have children with a stroller. There is a lift, but the easiest it to carry it up. The service was great during our stay. Location is great with a lot of store around the corner. Transportation is very convenient with buses RERs and subway a block way.
"Parisian style Grand Hotel"
Me and my partner went to Le Grand to celebrate our anniversary. Service was wonderful, attention in detail, decor was amazing, not just luxurious but also cultural historical. Location couldn't be better. It is just spectacular!
"Another Great Stay"
We stayed 4 nights this time just around the corner from the Executive lounge near the junction with the settee beneath a work of art' Our room had a bathroom with tub and a separate shower per my request at check-in, and everything was clean and well supplied. My only issue with the room was that the TV would not show me my bill or any of the choices such as weather, etc. We could have watched one free movie, but that also was not an option although we really had no chance to watch a movie as we enjoyed the lounge or the streets and restaurants of Paris. The air worked well even in late December so there was no issue of a stuffy room. We still had to maneuver with the electrical outlets, but I was prepared this time with my own extension cord so that we could have multiple ones by the bed as there are no extra ones available! Our view was of the courtyard as requested for quietness. When we checked in, this time in the lobby actually, they had originally assigned us to a room on the 2nd floor, but I said we would like to be higher to avoid any issues with Metro noise below. This was fine, and our welcome basket eventually made it to us later that evening. The lounge was fantastic as always and Gilles was there our first two nights and took personal care of all our needs. Ernesto, the head guy in the lounge, made sure each day that we were happy with everything. The food was good although I ate one too many of the raw oysters on the first night so use lots of lemon juice or horseradish if they have raw oysters or similar to offer. They didn't have lamb this time so I just picked at the food most of the time. There was one lady who seemed to always be there eating when we there during our 4 days! Ignazio, Cecile, Ellena, and everyone else went above and beyond as always in the lounge. We didn't make any contact with the people below except at check-in. I was disappointed in how they handled a fire alarm at about 1:30 am on our first night. Because I know French, I was able to identify the emergency exit as I watched several people go round and round the floor not knowing where to go! We walked down all the way and emerged at the side of the front, circular entrance on Rue Scribe. There were about 20 of us, mostly Americans, but the staff seemed confused as to if we could go back in or what. The alarms had stopped as we were coming down the stairs. If there had been a fire or other disaster, it would not have been pretty. There were no announcements, just an alarm, and no one from the staff was around until we got downstairs, and they seemed unsure what was happening! Some people even took the elevator down during the alarm, but most seemed to either not know how to get down or stayed in their rooms. Training is needed in case there is a real fire or other reason for evacuation! They made amends and apologized so I am still giving a 5, but it was just fortunate that this was a false alarm!
